Card Box Decoration
Paper Casting Project

#286 – Hearts
#289 – Diamonds,   #287 – Clubs
#288 – Spades

Materials Needed:
1 Rycraft cookie stamp or craft stamp #286 – Hearts,  #289 – Diamonds,   #287 – Clubs,  #288 – Spades
Cotton linter - (see Rycraft Paper Casting Kit and Refill)
2 each: heart, spade, diamond, club cardboard or wood cut-outs (from the craft store)
     -  or make your own using 2 castings* each: #286 – Hearts, #287 – Clubs, #288 – Spades, and #289 - Diamonds   
1 box to fit a deck of cards (we used a natural cardboard craft box from the craft store)
Acrylic spray varnish
Acrylic paints: red, black

*Note:  Alternately, the casting for this project may be made from clay instead of paper (see Basic Clay Casting Instructions). The choice is yours.

1.  Apply red paint to the gift box lid. Let dry. Apply a second coat if desired. Let dry.
2. When paper casting is dry, apply a light coat of varnish to seal the casting from moisture (so it will not swell and lose the design when paint is applied). Apply a light 2nd coat of varnish and let dry.
3.  Use a fine-tipped paint brush to apply black (or red) paint to the design. Let dry.
2. Apply red and black paint to the wood cut-outs (as shown) and let dry.
Use glue or hot glue to affix casting to top of box lid and let dry.
6.  Glue wood cutouts to 2 longer sides of box (4 on each side).
